Poem of the Day For: Sunday, July 22, 2018
Children’s bedrooms have a way of getting messy and out of control. Kids enjoy playing with many different things that they forget to put away their toys, but the piles can build up so quickly.
Connect Over a Poem:
Talk to your child about a time their room was extremely messy and the most surprising thing they found when cleaning up the clutter.
Have your child draw a picture of the room described in this poem. Then have them draw a picture of their own room. Which room is messier?
by Shel Silverstein Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.

Poem of the Week for: 07/17/2018 - 07/23/2018
Although you may feel close to your neighbors and friends, there is nothing like family. These are the ones who are closest to you in blood. You share the same history and ancestors who cared for you. When you really need help, family members are the ones who are most likely to come through. This week's poem is an ode to family from Edgar A. Guest (1881 -1959), "the people's poet" who wrote a poem a day for the Detroit Free Press for 30 years. That's more than 11,000 poems!
If you are lucky enough to come from a functional family with siblings, parents and children who love you, reach out and strengthen those bonds. Be a Stick-Together Family! There are many people who are not so lucky.
The Stick-Together Families
by Edgar Guest
The stick-together families are happier by far
Than the brothers and the sisters who take separate highways are.
The gladdest people living are the wholesome folks who make
A circle at the fireside that no power but death can break.
